Best Bar Food 

Lava Lounge

The staffers at this tiny retro lounge in Tremont like to pretend it's just a bar, not a restaurant. But don't let them fool you: The food here is first-rate. Gorgonzola-topped rib-eye on focaccia bread, peppery cavatelli, cold marinated pork tenderloin, prosciutto-stuffed Mozzarella, and what is, for our hard-earned dinero, the best fried calamari in the city all more than hold their own against the generous mixed drinks, draft beer, and selection of better wines brought to you by your friendly barkeep. Set it all against a backdrop of throbbing electronica, under the light of undulating lava lamps, and the result is a big serving of urban atmosphere.
